Snowing in SJTU (with Kijiji Logo)

This is the scene from outside my office window. (FYI, SJTU = Shanghai Jiaotong University). Photos were taken by colleges in office.

  1. oh,wonderful.Very creative.

  2. Shanghai is much warmer that many cities in China. But i see from the photo that it also experience a freezing winter.

  3. I did not see the snow scene in ten years.

  4. When I left PVG it had just started to snow. Nothing was accumulating so we didn’t need to get deiced. It sure is strange having snow there. Also, from your photos I now know exactly where your office is. I walk by it all the time. George

  5. Thanks for posting those Shanghai snow scene pics.

  7. When I looked at the 1st pic, I thought that it was taken in Russia…. Maybe it is the Soviet-looking buildings.

  8. I’m very sorry to hear on the international news, what devastating effects this weather has had throughout China. It was so helpful, when listening to news reports, to have already had your perspective about those people waiting at train stations, etc.

    And how cool (a pun!) that you made the kijiji promo in the snow like that. What fun if it happened to become visible by something like Google Earth :-)

  9. I really hope that our SIA flight can land at Pudong on Saturday… the forecast is looking pretty bad for Friday (just the day before), and I believe they expect huge delays and cancellations again at Pudong on Friday… :(

  10. @AussiePB: Please bring some green leafy vegetables along. They are very hard to get now. I am sure your in laws will appreciate them.

    No, UAL. I did train some Russian Pilots in 1994 in Denver. I still keep in touch with one who flies for Aeroflot.

  12. I could hardly believe it when I heard the news that it had snowed in Shanghai and Nanjing and points south. Thank you for the wonderful pics. The first is the route I would hurry down many mornings to my English class. Now I miss it more than ever; my students said it hadn’t really snowed in ten years. I missed that coming from a snowy region, and missed it again this year (by moving back–it snowed here too, and is about -10 C now)! Thanks and happy new year!

  13. in the 1700s europe conquored china – that’s why all our stuff says “made in china” on them. No longer are there conquorers alive, but free trade means no-one is in charge. You will freeze to death as we buy the fuel.

    E=mcc is Einsteins equation, energy (movement, light – a category) and mass (all things, everything) are in the same equation (description).

    We have two ways of describing (two brainhalves), language and vision.

    E=mcc means there is an unthinkable thought (reminds us there is realm of mind in realm of mind, realm of mind = thinker and thought, i exist i think = separation exists).

    Give this to everybody.

    Imagine layers on top of eachother, each layer is infinite 3-dimensional space at an observer size, observer size is represented from up to down (the stack of layers, observer (eye) size represented as an axis from the 3 dimensions. It means we have description, we cannot have reality (the whole universe in the primate mind) but we can describe it as a layered structure (layers of justification = atoms justify molecules.

    The mind found in the middle of the known sizescale (between galaxies and atoms), it is the shape of a brain/body (sensors (cells) are in the body).

    Vision is description.

    Take a layer from the sizescale, the one in the middle and you would select an eye-size (microscope or telescope).

    we are here because of brutal history. survival of most surviving in each generation, most means you can have many children etc etc.

    from, beginning with, reproduction. a lump of molecules reproduced (DNA), combined surrounding molecules into a similar shape.
